The Tamaqua Area Faith Fellowship Network will sponsor a Service of Healing and Hope in response to last week's difficult times which included the loss of a Tamaqua woman in a reported homicide, the deaths of a husband and wife in an accident and the discovery of a methamphetamine lab, the second one in two months.

The ecumenical healing service will be held at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday at Bethany Evangelical Congregational Church, 223 E. Broad St. The public, especially anyone dealing with a loss, is welcome to attend.
